Holy Spirit Helps us To Love God

Yesterday, the Holy Spirit convicted me real hard as I was about to go to bed. It happened as I was opening my Bible, and there fell upon me a strange unfamiliarity. The unfamiliarity, coupled with the Holy Spirit, communicated, “You really haven’t been in the Word this season that much.”

God was gripping me how I was, by virtue of my lack of action, “forgetting my first love.” First love, as I remember, always gets first place. Not second place. Not to be relegated to the mercies of my schedule.

This is a potent reminder of what the Holy Spirit’s job and what he loves to do-He is here to empower us to love God with a whole heart.
